  • Evaluating Predictors of 30-day Readmission Rates and Time to First Readmission Within 90-day Period in Patients with Acute Decompensated Heart Failure

    Purpose: To show that multiple barriers, including laboratory tests, imaging, cognitive and socioeconomic factors are predictors of 30-day readmission rates and the time to first readmission in patients with ADHF.
  • IRMA 2014: Impact of Ranolazine on Inflammatory, Thrombogenic, Lipogenic, Biomarkers in Women with Angina and Metabolic Syndrome

    Purpose: More than 5 million women are living with chronic stable angina (CSA) today compared to 4 million men. Similarly more women than men are affected with the metabolic syndrome (MBS). MBS is a group of cardiovascular risk factors such as pre-hypertension, poorly controlled cholesterol, and poorly controlled glucose levels. The metabolic syndrome leads to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes in apparently healthy individuals. It is associated with advanced vascular damage and poorer health outcomes in those with cardiovascular disease (CVD). The reason for this gender difference in angina and MBS is unclear. Ranolazine is a drug the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved for the treatment of angina. It has also had favorable effects on glycemic control. The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential additional benefits of ranolazine in women with CVD and MBS and to evaluate the ability of ranolazine to decrease angina. Secondary, this study will look at certain biomarkers in a group of ethnically diverse women with CSA and with MBS.
